Touch interactions have refreshed some of the 'glowing enthusiasm' of thirty years ago for direct manipulation interfaces. However, today's touch technologies, whose interactions are supported by graphics, sounds or crude clicks, have a tactile sameness and gaps in usability. We use a Large Area Tactile Pattern Display (LATPaD) to examine design possibilities and outcomes when touch interactions are enhanced with variable surface friction. In a series of four studies, we first confirm that… 
Touchy : A Visual Approach for Simulating Haptic Effects on Touchscreens
TLDR
This paper proposes an alternative approach called "Touchy", where a symbolic cursor is introduced under the user's finger, to evoke various haptic properties through changes in its shape and motion, which enables to address four different perceptual dimensions, namely: hardness, friction, fine roughness and macro roughness.
Exploring the design space of programmable friction for scrolling interactions
TLDR
Using a touchscreen capable of dynamically altering its surface friction, the design space of haptically-augmented scrolling interactions is explored and programmable friction's ability to provide appropriate feedback in envisioned usage scenarios is investigated.
Frictional widgets: enhancing touch interfaces with programmable friction
TLDR
Four exemplar applications demonstrate tactile effects that improve touch interactions by enhancing physicality, performance, and subjective satisfaction.
Enriching Musical Interaction on Tactile Feedback Surfaces with Programmable Friction
TLDR
The preliminary findings suggest that friction-based tactile feedback is a useful tool to enrich musical interactions and learning.
Designing tactile patterns with programmable friction
TLDR
This study compares the perception of tactile textures with a programmable friction device (squeeze film effect) and with a physical support (printed coated paper cards) and shows that despite the limitations of programmableriction, participants interpret textures in a similar way.
Designing Tactile Patterns using Programmable Friction
Recent advances on programmable friction technologies make it possible to change the friction perception of an interactive surface such as a touchpad or a touchscreen. However, regardless of the
KinesTouch: 3D Force-Feedback Rendering for Tactile Surfaces
TLDR
The KinesTouch is introduced, a novel approach for tactile screen enhancement providing four types of haptic feedback with a single force-feedback device: compliance, friction, fine roughness, and shape.
Reducing Visual Dependency with Surface Haptic Touchscreens
TLDR
This paper demonstrates that surface haptic feedback can improve the task completion time and accuracy of manipulating non-visual bullseye menus giving users greater confidence while performing selection tasks.
Exploring the perceptual space of a novel slip-stick haptic surface display
TLDR
Vibration beating is described, a novel haptic actuation method that increases the range of cues that can be rendered via dynamic variations of surface friction, and a set of 16 stimuli were chosen and two studies that generate and interpret a perceptual map are described.
Exploring affective communication through variable-friction surface haptics
TLDR
It is concluded that users readily associate haptics with emotional expression and that the intimacy of touch in the contexts the authors study is best suited for communications with close social partners.

TeslaTouch: electrovibration for touch surfaces
TLDR
The proposed technology is based on the electrovibration principle, does not use any moving parts and provides a wide range of tactile feedback sensations to fingers moving across a touch surface, which enables the design of a wide variety of interfaces that allow the user to feel virtual elements through touch.
Tactile interfaces for small touch screens
TLDR
This work embedded a tactile apparatus in a Sony PDA touch screen and enhanced its basic GUI elements with tactile feedback and believes that tactile feedback will become the next step in touch screen interface design and a standard feature of future mobile devices.
Crossmodal congruence: the look, feel and sound of touchscreen widgets
TLDR
The results of this research will enable mobile touchscreen UI designers to create realistic, congruent buttons by selecting the most appropriate audio and tactile counterparts of visual button styles by manipulating the different parameters of each modality.
A new approach to haptic augmentation of the GUI
TLDR
A haptic alternative to the tool palette, called Pokespace, is introduced, which follows a new approach, whereby haptic interaction techniques are designed from scratch, in explicit consideration of the strengths and weaknesses of the haptic and motor systems.
T-PaD: Tactile Pattern Display through Variable Friction Reduction
TLDR
The theory, design and construction of a haptic display for creating texture sensations through variations in surface friction and using finger position and velocity feedback on the display allows for the creation of spatial texture sensations.
Contact area interaction with sliding widgets
TLDR
This work showcases the design of several types of Sliding Widgets, and reports study results showing that the simplest of these widgets, the Sliding Button, performs on-par with medium-sized pushbuttons and offers greater accuracy for small-sized buttons.
Exploring affective design for physical controls
TLDR
This work demonstrates a process for measuring and comparing visceral emotional responses of a physical control to performance results of a target acquisition task and provides novel affect- and performance-based design guidance to developers of physical controls for emerging ubiquitous computing environments.
Applying an Aesthetic Framework of Touch for Table-Top Interactions
In this paper, we propose a conceptual framework for understanding the aesthetic qualities of multi-touch and tactile interfaces for table-top interaction. While aesthetics has traditionally been

Tactile feedback allows devices to communicate with users when visual and auditory feedback are inappropriate. Unfortunately, current vibrotactile feedback is abstract and not related to the content
Multimodal feedback for the acquisition of small targets
TLDR
Analysis of how multimodal feedback assists small-target acquisition in graphical user interfaces shows that for small, discretely located targets all feedback modes reduce targeting times, with stickiness providing substantial improvements.
